The Whistle Stop Cafe Kentucky pie by Lynn Cummins

1 Cup Brown Sugar

½ Cup White Sugar

½ Cup Margarine Or Butter Melted

1 Teaspoon Vanilla

1 Tablespoon Flour

2 Tablespoon Milk

2 Eggs Beaten

1-1½ Cup Coarsely Chopped Pecans

1 cup chocolate chips

Mix sugars and flour.

Stir in melted butter.

Add eggs, milk, vanilla, and mix well.

Spread chocolate chips evenly over bottom of pie crust. Pour liquid mixture into 1- 9 inch unbaked pie shell. (we use our homemade shell made with flour and lard).

Sprinkle pecans evenly over the top. I like lots of pecans so I always use at least the 1 and a half cups.

Bake about 45 minutes. When it puffs up and starts to crack across the top it is done.

For Pecan Pie simply omit the chocolate chips.
